Who We Are & What We Do
Ampthill and Flitwick Flyers mission is to provide a running club that caters for ALL running abilities in the local and wider community.
Everyone is welcome regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.
Qualified coaches provide suitable, safe, and structured training sessions so that runners can improve their fitness and running ability.
We strive to encourage, help, and support all our members, from beginners looking to get started with running to achieve 5k or 10k goals all the way through to experienced runners who wish to achieve longer distances.
We actively celebrate and encourage success, however small, through social media and at our annual awards presentation.

donations to our chosen charity
Every year AFF donates 15% of net income after costs of the 3 club races, the Flitwick 10k, the Marston 5K and the Ampthill Trophy to the charity we have selected.
Throughout 2021, we have chosen to support the Children's Liver Disease Foundation, this small charity works tirelessly in fighting childhood liver disease by providing information, emotional support, and funding research. They are the only UK charity dedicated to fighting liver diseases in children.
In addition to the club donation, we also undertake other fund-raising activities to help raise much needed money for the charity.
